    Good step by home department sindh. Most of the arsonists who burnt vehicles and shops were pillion riding,they just douse petrol,set it on fire and conveniently escape from the scene into narrow lanes and streets . In past too hundreds of goons pillion riding of bikes gang up and attack and torch public property as well as people . Although it would cause inconvenience to all those who have nothing to do with voilence.

    hmmm Good step for the security of citizen but how d0ct0r described it is too ugly.
    since last two days mobs are attacking passengers traveling in buses.
    they take them in lanes of unstructured areas of Karachi which are mostly build by grabbing lands illegally beat them and then through them on some scolded areas
    this is what is happening since last 2 days. Police is unable to control these mobs in the areas of Banaras and Sohrab Goth.
    p.S: Sohrab Goth and Banaras Areas are strong holds of Taliban elements and number of drug and arm suppliers from Dara Adam Khel have their bases there

    one more thing the law enforcment agencies should be more be focued on Banaras & Sohrab Goth because these two areas are highly affected..People can’t pass through these two corridors..looting and other mishapping are going on very frequently.They Should take serious actions..people are not safe passing through these areas specially WOMEN.

    Yes, these areas are controlled by people who are close to Talibans, who run businesses related to drug smuggling, smuggling of other goods, robbers, transport mafia, land mafia, weapon mafia etc You name it, they do it!

    That land should be taken back under government’s control. Sohrab Goth has hundreds of Afghanies living there. We need to send them back to Afghanistan or have them registered under governments Alient registration program. They should NOT be allowed to purchase any property here and they should NOT be allowed to send money outside Pakistan. They should NOT be allowed to travel outside the city without prior permission. They should pay more tax than the local people. If they do not like it, they can go back. We are not here to deal with the mess that is Afghans. Unfortunately, we did not do any of the things that we should have done long time back and these Afghans are filthy rich with their filthy businesses.

    Pathans living here in Karachi are strong supporters of these Afghan elements. These Afghans give money to pathans to run their businesses and have fain strong support from them. Anybody who supports these Afghans should be kicked out of the city or should be registered or should learn to BEHAVE in this city. Should learn to keep this city clean of crime and should not claim any areas.

    Sohrab Goth should be sweeped clean of such elements. We need Karachi to have peace. This city feeds the rest of the hungry country Alhamdullilah. If Karachi goes down, so does the rest of the country especially if you consider Pakistan’s current economic state.

    I just want to know whts wrong with GEO. They are happy to cover a chief Justice March all night but for khi violence they give tickers and maybe a 1 min headline at the start of evey hour.

    I say boycott GEO, they dont respect karachites. I saw a breaking news on a space shuttle landing in the US but appraently people dying in Khi is normal news.


    Any one with me

    @concerned; I stop following GEO long ago…Boycott

    All the trouble in karachi in areas where suspected talibans fleeing from NWFP are getting refuge.

    Senior Police officials and investigating agencies have compiled a list of terrorists involved in ethnic violence and terrorism. Majority of them belong to MQM’s unit/sector terror cells . Police officials plan to take action against these terrorist who are trying to stir ethnic violence under the pretext of talibanization .

    After issuance of Shoot-to-kill orders by Dr Zulfiqar Mirza, as was predicted in this story 14 SHOs of Karachi have been changed to deal with the terrorists.

    As i earlier pointed out the shakeup continues in Karachi Police. DIG west(the affected area) Aleem Jafri has been replaced with DIG Sardar Abdul Majeed Dasti.

    Besides the DIG, 2 more SHOs have been suspended because in the fresh incidents a tandoor wala, Quetta tea Hotel owner and a peanut seller were gunned down in their areas and North Nazimabad’s TPO have been transferred to Landhi . Dr Zulfiqar Mirza is finally flexing his muscles .

    Terorists MQM Altaf’s unit and sector terror cells have resorted to targeted killings. Today almost 14 people were gunned down and total death toll since all this mayhem started reaches to around 44 and countless others injured. More then 100 arrests have been made since Saturday. Today i have seen most of those arrested and i personally feel security agencies are on right path so far. Written orders for ’shoot to kill’ have been issued and law enforcement agencies on the ground have been notified. Although so far no miscreant has been shot dead after the issuance of this directive.

    In all this mayhem MQM is busy wiping out sunni tehreek and other parties political workers. Besides that more pathan business owners have been shot dead and their businesses ransacked. Peshawri Icecream that Adnan mentioned had been working for last so many decades without any controversy but it seems that its pathan owner became victim of Altaf’s latest terror campaign to gun down pakhtun business owners . Altaf’s North Nazimabad Block G unit/sector terror cell is among the most notorious ones in karachi and it had been really active lately in this campaign against Pathan/Balochi shop owners.

    Around 100 MQM aunties just protested outside a police station just now to get "masoom bachay" (Innocent kids) who were caught red handed and arrested earlier by Police and Rangers for burning pathan owned Mini Bus and other transport. I have seen the ones arrested i am expecting Altaf bai to create some fuss . On april 9th MQM Altaf’s terrorist managed to escape from the scene,this time they’re busted and captured. A trip to drawing room will crack some terror cells.

  15. d0ct0r on December 2nd, 2008 @ 12:26 am

    ..And all public and private school and colleges will also remain close on Tuesday as well

  16. balma on December 2nd, 2008 @ 12:55 am

    Neem-Hakeem, I have to give you credit for your LASER sharp focus on MQM.

    Seems like you keep track of each and every fart of Altaf bhai.
    Abay, itnee mehnet Physics research may lagaaee hotee, tou ab talak tujhay nobel prize mil jaataa!

    And what about you being there where the maasoom bachaas were picked? Should we have you picked up too, just as a witness may be?

  17. actuary on December 2nd, 2008 @ 2:51 pm

    Once again blame game …

    I think we are no one to decide who is right or wrong
    This is the responsibility of the concerned law and order department to investigate which group is/are responsible, all we want is PEACE and routine life of Karachi.

    The issue is when we can put fingers on X and Y group why not police is taking major steps against them.

    one again its the biggest failure of police.

  18. d0ct0r on December 2nd, 2008 @ 9:58 pm

    @balma uncle actually i wasn’t there when they were picked up,i had seen them after they were detained.. And with exception of few masoom bachay(aged between 10~12) who were released very next day on surety of Rs 10000 the others were any thing but masoom bachay (aged between 18~30) they looked like hardened criminals.
